by American Meat Science Association’s (AMSA)
Posted: Thursday, March 1, 2018 at 3:42PM EST

Champaign IL – Trevor Butterworth with Sense About Science USA will be the featured keynote speaker at the American Meat Science Association’s (AMSA) 71st Reciprocal Meat Conference (RMC) on Tuesday, June 26th at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, MO. This keynote presentation, sponsored by Kemin, will address “Trust, Transparency, and Communicating Science.”  Butterworth will focus on the reality that facts rarely change people’s beliefs. What does that mean for scientific integrity and progress moving forward?

Butterworth is founding Executive Director of Sense About Science USA, which launched in 2014 as a sister organization to Sense About Science in the U.K. Sense About Science USA is a non-profit which seeks to improve the public understanding of scientific evidence through programs that promote statistical literacy, quantitative reasoning, and effective science communication.

The American Statistical Association is a major collaborative partner. Butterworth has written for The Washington Post, The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, and The New Yorker.com, among many other publications. He is a visiting fellow at Cornell University and VP for Research for CynjaTech, a technology company focused on data, privacy, and security. He is a graduate of Trinity College Dublin, and Columbia University.

The AMSA 71st RMC will be held June 24-27, 2018 at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, MO.  For more information regarding the AMSA 71st RMC please visit: http://www.meatscience.org/rmc or contact Deidrea Mabry 1-800-517-AMSA ext. 12.
